SAN FRANCISCO — Young and old are invited to join the East and West Japan Center Malls in welcoming the holidays with Santa Claus and the elves at Santa’s Workshop on Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 14-15, from1 to 5 p.m.

Santa Claus has set up a special area where your little ones can pose for photos with him and share your holiday wish list. Santa takes the time to talk individually with each child. Bring your camera to capture the moment, as there will not be a photographer.

Don’t forget to visit Santa’s Workshop, where kids can make cards and crafts as presents for the holidays.

The East and West Japan Center Malls are located on either side of the Japantown Peace Plaza at the intersection of Post and Buchanan streets in San Francisco.
